Oral Health and Hygiene Workshop

The school nurse and dental team visited MCPA to deliver a workshop on oral health and hygiene. Children in reception, year 1 and 2 talked about the dentist, the role of a dentist and how they help to give advice on keeping your teeth clean and strong.


Year 3-5 spoke about healthy eating and how important it was to have a well balance diet and the importance of cleaning your teeth and where to clean to reduce tooth decay.


Two pupils volunteered to show where plaque can build up during the day using a colour disk, which turned their mouths purple to show the areas where we need to brush properly.

 

All the children learnt alot from the workshop, with many having lots of questions for the dental team.
